Make air pollution in Bristol a priority
We call upon Bristol City Council to treat air pollution as the severe threat to public health that it is, to radically improve efforts to combat it, and to make it a priority to educate the population of Bristol about this invisible killer.
Why is this important?
Air pollution is a dangerously under-reported health issue in Bristol. Levels of air pollution in our city are in breach of EU law, and a recent report has found that hospital admissions and deaths from particulate pollution are on the rise.
This is unacceptable for a city that carries the title of European Green Capital.
At the moment, the mere acting of walking around on the streets of Bristol is slowly killing you. The council needs to be doing more to both rectify this problem and educate people about it.
